Megan’s Law – If you are selected to perform at the California State Fair you will be required to complete a Megan’s Law form. In 1998, the
California State Fair implemented a policy requiring that all persons conducting business with, employed by, or volunteering at Cal Expo during the
course of the annual State Fair shall provide the necessary personal information to enable their names to be searched through the Department of
Justice’s Megan’s Law files.

IMPORTANT! Due to the dramatic increase in the number and variety of available performers, we are requiring that each performer or group submit
a promotional packet or EPK (electronic press kits) to help us in the selection process. This might include one of more of the following:
documentation citing past awards or recognition of the performer or group, letters of recommendation, a listing of public appearances (including radio
and TV), pictures and, if possible, a video or audio sample of your performance. Performers may substitute a website address if site contains all the
above elements or a combination of hard copy and website information. Acts that compliment our Fair theme will get more consideration. EPK
(electronic press kits) encouraged

                                    Your proposed act must be family-oriented and appropriate for all ages.
